Graffiti Removal

Graffiti at 7th and Dawson along the mosaic flower wall, also known as the “The Friendship Corner”

Residents Ed Campbell, Sylvia Salcedo and Cody Lusby quickly restored the mosaic flower wall known as “The Friendship Corner” on 7th Street and Dawson, after it was tagged with graffiti some time Wednesday morning.

Roses for Rose Park Cody Lusby brought supplies and paint to the site, and with the help of Sylvia and Ed, they worked together to restore the mosaic flower wall back to its original state. We are so grateful to our neighbors!

Rose Park Neighborhood Association would also like to thank the residents who messaged us on Instagram @roseparklb about the graffiti. Please stay connected and keep us informed, and remember to use the GO Long Beach app to report issues such as graffiti, dumped items, potholes, and more!

Rose Park Construction Improvements & Tree Maintenance

Rose Park Gazebo on 8th and Orizaba Ave.

The gazebo is now temporarily closed to complete construction upgrades to the gazebo. Improvements are underway at Rose Park which include installation of six new lighting fixtures, a new electrical outlet along with two outlet security boxes beneath the gazebo and the four park benches underneath the gazebo will be repainted.

The contractor encourages park patrons to keep children away from the construction areas and activities.

Tree Maintenance is also taking place at Rose Park. Parks Recreation and Marine is currently removing dead or dying trees in City parks that pose a danger to park visitors. Rose Park Neighborhood Association will be reaching out to residents for input while working with city staff to determine what can be planted to restore our trees. For more information, please view the tree inventory report for Rose Park HERE https://www.longbeach.gov/globalassets/park/media-library/documents/maintenance-operations/rose-park-updated (the red squares on the report identify the damaged areas).

For questions or concerns, please email parkscip@longbeach.gov. The Rose Park Neighborhood Association will be offering community input events regarding Rose Park, so please stay tuned for future dates and times coming up!
